Mechanical Engineering

A masters refers to the completion of a graduate study program that prepares students to further their knowledge of a specific subject or advance their careers. The majority of masters are granted by state or public universities.

Mechanical engineering is the manufacturing of products that move. It encompasses the entire production process, from drafting an idea for an item, to understanding the mechanics necessary to make the item work, to the production of the completed item, to incorporating that item into larger systems.

Sweden (Sverige) is the largest of the Nordic countries, with a population of about 9.5 million. It borders Norway and Finland and is connected to Denmark via the bridge of Öresund (Öresundsbron). Sweden has a strong tradition of being an open, yet discreet country.

Best Masters in Mechanical Engineering in Sweden 2017. The joint Master's programme in Turbomachinery Aeromechanical University Training (THRUST) is a cooperation between KTH, Duke University, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and Université de Liège. The programme offers education of high international standard as well as cultural experience from at least two different countries and a double degree from two universities. Energy and propulsion are much needed systems in the world for most modern human activities and social development for a sustainable society. Turbomachines produce more than 90% of all electricity in the world, drive the majority of aircrafts and are used extensively as compressors, pumps, etc. in many modern applications (e.g. refrigerators, ventilators, etc). Programme outline The programme is highly integrated, first of all regarding student and teacher mobility for certain common lectures, but also related to the extended use of remote teaching by the specialist teachers at all four universities, in conjunction with “face-to-face” and “virtual” interactive workshops and project courses. The educational programme THRUST offers a unique, modern and highly interactive learning material which enhances the student learning process. This, together with the “remote learning” aspects, will also allow for a substantial potential for already active industrial persons to participate in the programme as part of the life-long learning inside their respective companies. Given the nature of the subject of aeromechanics, multidisciplinary skills are fostered. Career prospects The THRUST programme offers the students a worldwide unique education at a high academic level, involving researchers/teachers at three European and one US top universities in the area and prepares the students for a direct industrial engagement. Furthermore it paves the way for continued PhD studies in this field. Application closed From intake 2015 THRUST is no longer an Erasmus Mundus programme, but will run as a joint Master's programme. The programme is not yet open for application. [-]

The field of Engineering Mechanics includes all areas of the industrial design process that are based on advanced mechanical analysis of product behavior and functionality. The Master’s programme equips students with the knowledge and skills required to focus on reliable and sustainable design by simulations and experiments. Programme outline The education within the three tracks – Fluid Mechanics, Solid Mechanics and Sound & Vibration – is conducted with involvement from industry and influenced by the latest research. Only one third of the courses are mandatory, so students can tailor the course structure to meet their individual aims. This is very useful for those interested in exchange studies. The theoretical courses are mixed with more applied project courses and the final degree project is often performed at a company in Sweden or abroad. Degree project The fourth semester is spent working on a five month degree project, where the student has the opportunity to investigate a specific area in-depth. The degree project is performed either in industry or at a university department, in Sweden or abroad. Students doing their degree project close to KTH may also take courses in parallel with their thesis work. Career prospects Students who graduate from the Engineering Mechanics programme will be proficient in fluid mechanics, solid mechanics and sound & vibration – areas that are tied to a multitude of industries. Graduates will find a wide range of job opportunities in research and development within industrial companies, consulting firms and research institutes, not only in mechanical engineering, but also in other engineering fields.

Best Masters in Mechanical Engineering in Sweden 2017. Master’s Programme in Mechanical Engineering with Emphasis on Structural Engineering The aim of the program is to have the student prepare for participation in advanced product development or research within mechanical engineering. The aim is that the student after completed degree should master a coordinated working method at analysis for decision support in the product development process, the extensive modules of virtual and physical modelling, simulation and experimental investigation and optimisation. Coordinated working method at analysis for decision support. The student is expected to inform herself/himself about current field-relevant research and considerably increase her/his ability to communicate her/his own contributions with scientific facts and relations both orally and in writing by means of modern tools for visualisation and documentation. The coordinated working method can in short be described according to: Virtual models for description of interesting product properties and behaviours are developed, verified and used for simulations of the functionality of the system. The Simulation result is compared with experimental results of studies on delimited parallelly developed physical models, or with experiences from earlier development, with the aim of validating the virtual models. The coordination also implies that the virtual models are used to design good physical models and measurement strategies. This process is repeated until sufficient agreement is achieved. Simulation with the virtual model can then be used for optimisation. If the optimisation shows a need for changes that influence the relevance for the current model, the whole procedure is repeated. More detailed descriptions are, when necessary, gradually added to the model during the ongoing development of the analysed product. At the development of a completely new product, several iterations are usually required. When a new variant of a product is developed, earlier experiences can largely be reused. Learning outcomes In addition to the nationally regulated aims, which are found under point 8, the following aims apply to the education. After completion of the education, the student should: - be able to formulate and validate numerical and analytical models of mechanical systems by means of both advanced software and by means of strong simplified relations for important characteristics - be able to specify, carry out and interpret measurements and analysis of vibrations for rotating machines and other mechanical structures - be able to specify, carry out and interpret experimental modal analysis on mechanical structures - be able to carry out simulation of mechanical systems with parameters received from numerical models and/or experiment, for example regarding effect from imposed load and/or simple structural changes - be able to carry out optimisation of mechanical systems based on results of numerical models, simulations and measurements to meet the market needs and draw use of technological progress - be able to coordinate activities and report received results in an understandable way under the observing of general rules and practice for scientific writing - understand effects on society and environment of the student’s own activities Mode of delivery The program is constituted by, in substance, compulsory courses that build on each other in a given order. Only one of the concluding courses is chosen dependent on expected specialisation of the following degree project. The intended study path for the programme is illustrated below, followed by a brief description of compulsory courses and elective courses. More detailed descriptions are found in respective course syllabus. The study programme goes through continuous evaluation and development which can mean that the range of courses offered and placing of courses in time is changed. Prerequisites For admission to the study programme, a Bachelor's degree or a Bachelor of Science in Engineering within mechanical engineering are required, preferably with specialisation in structural mechanics. A higher education qualification should contain mathematics including matrix algebra, multivariable analysis and transform theory, basic mechanics and programming. The requirement in English is English B. Admission Criteria For second-cycle programmes, special selection is applied. The special selection implies that one or several selection criteria are weighted together according to a method that results in a tariff. Method 12: special selection for master's programme within the field of technology. Selection steps: Academic degree - The first stage of the assessment process consists of an assessment of how relevant the field and specialisation of the applicant's earlier higher education qualifications is for the specialisation of the programme applied to. The assessment is made in three categories: minimum relevance given the entry requirements = tariff 0, medium-high relevance= tariff 0.5, high relevance = tariff 1. TOEFL - Finally the applicant’s TOEFL is standardised; respective IELTS-levels in English to a value between 0 and 1, where 0 is the minimum level to be qualified and 1 is the maximum level on the test. Applicants that are exempted from showing their levels in English with TOEFL/IELTS-levels are given the tariff 1. These three values are added to a collected tariff that can vary between 0-3. Qualified applicants with the same qualifications: If two or more applicants to a first - and second-cycle alternative have the same tariff, lots are drawn.

Master in Machine LearningMachine Learning is a scientific discipline focused on the development of algorithms that spot patterns or make predictions from empirical data. Already such algorithms have allowed computers to answer these questions: "Where are the faces in this photo?" and "Can you recommend a movie for me to watch?" In layman's terms, the relationship between data and predictions/patterns is learnt by examining a large quantity of relevant example information. This idea has become central to the design of search engines, robots and sensor systems which process large data sets.Programme outlineIn this programme you will learn the mathematical and statistical foundations and methods for Machine Learning and become comfortable manipulating them to solve questions. You will also gain practical experience of how to match, apply and implement relevant techniques from the field to real world problems. Therefore, the programme provides the students with both the theoretical tools and practical know- how of machine learning, and this is an excellent basis for either a career within industry or further advanced studies.The first semester is devoted to compulsory courses and provides an introduction and solid foundation to the field.
